Re: Big DATA Imports

What do you mean ? You mean WORK library can't hold this big table ?

Use 

options user='/folders/myfolders/' ;

 

switch your WORK into a Share fold, So as long as your disk is big enough to hold .

Re: Big DATA Imports

It's "funny"...
Now I've searched for awhile about this limitation but can't find any official docs about it. At least not at any "front page".
But if there is a limitation (I'm there is, and it seems logical) I can hardly see you could bypass it. And if you could, you shouldn't. The sw is for free for learning purposes. So if you have a need for larger data, chances are you are a potential paying customer.
What is your requirement?

There is a 10MB limit on AWS and SAS Academics On Demand. This is because you use someone else's services for running SAS in the cloud. If you use SAS UE on your computer there's no such limitation.

Re: Big DATA Imports

Why not make a TXT file to hold these data and use data step to import it .
